Beach Walk 247 – Zero to Tahiti

Kris Krengel started paddling in April this year, and tomorrow she leaves for Tahiti to paddle at the birthplace of outrigger canoeing.

Kris is a great example of someone over 40 discovering something new she loves and pouring herself into it wholeheartedly and wholebodily. I can’t begin to tell you the many hurdles a new paddler faces– physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual challenges. Being able to tap into your love of the activity to get through all of these is clearly one of Kris’s secrets.

Mahalo to Kris and Hillary for being on the show today. You can also see Kris on Show #64 – Lost? No just wandering.

Annnnd, the ability to sit around and do nothing is also worthy to us on Beach Walks. Which camp do you fall into more often?
